Show and Tell Friday - Pictures


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday at Kelli's House this week.

Here are a few spring pictures in my home. Two are pretty old and two are recent purchases.

These two were bought in the 80s at a Home Interior Party. Do you remember those parties? :o) Do they still have those today?

A swing surrounded by irises:



I've always loved rural mailboxes:



This one is very feminine. I originally bought it for my sewing room, but I think I will use it as a feminine touch in my closet!



I love the daisies, the potting table in the background and the chair. If you look closely you can see the sun streaming in the window.



You can see many other show and tell items at Kelli's House.

Oh yes, the Home Interior parties were all the rage, weren't they?!? I think they still have them. I know my mom goes to Home and Garden parties which carry very similar items.

I like the picture of the chair. Very cottagey.:-)

I don't know if they still have Home Interior parties or not. It was expensive back in the 80's... I can only imagine what it would cost now. I have several pieces too, but the colors no longer match what I try to decorate with. I keep saving them thinking that one day, pink and blue will come back around. :o) I really like your daisy picture.

I do indeed, remember those home parties. In fact, you have some of the same pics that I once had.

I LOVED Home Interior parties! My hubby didn't!! I didn't have any of the picture you have, but I had my share. I do think they are still in business, online. Have a great weekend.

Olala - I want to be IN the picture with the irises and swing.

Each of these is lovely in its own way and I've enjoyed seeing these!

Thank you

My favorite one is the third ... I'd love to have a cottage with a room like that!
